Here is the Dublin Bus/The Herald Dubs Stars football team 2013 which announced a few weeks ago.

GOALKEEPER: Michael Savage (St Vincent's)

Safe hands, quick feet. Ice-cube temperament.


RIGHT CORNER-BACK: Seán George (Ballymun Kickhams)

Pacey. Sees the ball early. Always on the front foot.


FULL-BACK: Robbie McDaid (Ballyboden St Enda's)

Tight marker. Excellent concentration.


LEFT CORNER-BACK: Hugh Gill (St Vincent's)

Brings wisdom to jersey. Does his own job superbly but always available to spark an attack.


RIGHT HALF-BACK: Alan Hubbard (Ballymun)

A footballer that lifts the tempo. Hubby has the get-up and go.


CENTRE HALF-BACK: Chris Guckian (St Jude's)

Commanding presence. Reads the play. Doesn't give away the tea-bags.


LEFT HALF-BACK: Michael Concarr (St Vincent's)

Purposeful performer. Silky and speedy.


MIDFIELD: Davy Byrne (Ballymun Kickhams)

The midfielder's midfielder. Wins ball and gives it simply.


MIDFIELD: James McCarthy (Ballymun)

Carries such elegance as he moves through the fair. A majestic maestro.


RIGHT HALF-FORWARD: Gavin Burke (St Vincent's)

Had the game of his life in the final on the Sunday. Power and panache.


CENTRE HALF-FORWARD: Diarmuid Connolly(St Vincent's)

Plays football with the Gods. Has a bigger bag of tricks than Tommy Cooper.


LEFT HALF-FORWARD: Dean Rock (Ballymun Kickhams)

Deano belongs in Carnegie Hall. A fabulous footballer. Class act.


RIGHT CORNER-FORWARD: Eugene Keating (St Sylvester's)

Can find a yard in Grafton Street on Christmas Eve. Knows where the post-box is.


FULL-FORWARD: Kevin McManamon (St Jude's)

Electric energy. Super Mac would give Bolt a run for his money.


LEFT CORNER-FORWARD: Tomás Quinn (St Vincent's)

Magical Mossy, still producing the hits. A Dublin footballing icon.



Seán Currie (Ballymun Kickhams): Assured presence. Made one of the saves of the season from Ruairi Trainor in the Sunday final.

Jarlath Curley (St Vincent's): Positive on the ball. Intelligent defender.

Gavin McArdle (St Sylvester's): Quality, inventive player. Brings zest to the job.

Ross McConnell (St Oliver Plunkett's/ER): Back fielding with the Lords of the Ring. And showing his undoubted calibre.

Ryan Basquel (Ballyboden St Enda's): Busy, bustling forward. Hit some memorable scores.

Ciarán Dorney (St Vincent's): Crisp finisher. Always ready to seize on the crumbs of a mince-pie.

Mark Vaughan (Kilmacud Crokes): A show-stopper. So many times the MVP. Great to see him back on the big stage.
